Fairy Tale Love


Some fairy tale visions for a Wednesday...

"If you want your children to be bright, read them fairy tales.  If you want them to be brilliant,
 read them even more fairy tales."  - Albert Einstein
Grimm's Fairy Tales, illustrated by P. Grot. Johann and R. Andre.   McLoughin Brothers, 1903.

Prince Charming and Cinderella dolls by Madame Alexander for McDonalds.

Hansel & Gretel 

More fairy tales: vintage Little Golden Books.


First edition!




A few fairytalish delights:  Robyn & Whitney are featuring "The Three Little Pigs" on Pen Pals & Picture Books this week.  (You must see Whitney's reenactment starring a blow dryer.)  Look at this spectacular "Hansel & Gretel" birthday party at Giggles Galore!  And look at the "Little Red Riding Hood" desserts from this party, featured on the Amy Atlas blog.  And we have this book on hold at the library.

  3. I don't have any of those little goldens! They look wonderful! Thanks so much for the link love :) I swear there's nothing like the middle of the winter for comfort reading.

    1. You're welcome, and yes, the Goldens are great!

      I'm reading Listening for Madeleine: A Portrait of Madeleine L'Engle in Many Voices. It's cool reading all these interviews with people who knew, while referencing all these books that I cherish so much. Perfect January reading for me. :o)
